Droid X is Verizon's Answer to Sprint's EVO 4G

Aside from looking fairly similar to the EVO 4G, the Droid X also gives the nation's first 4G handset a run for its money when it comes to specs. With a 4.4-inch, FWVGA (854x480) display; an 8-megapixel camera with flash (capable of shooting video in 720p); Android 2.1; a keyboard that boasts a multitouch option, which means holding down two keys at once results in both letters being recognized; a 1GHz ARMv7 processor; 8GB of storage; and special battery management software, this phone definitely falls into the high-end category of smartphones.

Like we said, Verizon is expected to make an announcement about this device on June 23, so stay tuned for more!

In the meantime, head on over to Engadget and have a gander at the demonstration videos they've got.

    Where is the webcam?? Its needs a webcam to be top of the line, because in 3 months most phones will probably have a webcam to fallow apple.

    WOW it's really thin. But then they have to go and add that awkward bulge by the camera >.< if they could eliminate then it would look sooo much better.

    Looks huge, but otherwise cool. Competition is great!!! Thanks to all the Androids and iPhones to push this segment at an incredible pace. (Well, okay maybe a little thanx to Palm and Microsoft too along with Blackberry.) Not long anymore and for what's feasible with such a small screen, but laptops become more and more obsolete for most private users. (No matter which vendor or provider you hate/love, the big players all are doing their part in this race!)

    I can't wait to type on a phone keyboard that recognizes multiple keys being held down at the same time. Finally, typing lololololololololololololololololololololololololololololol will be nice and easy.

  • EVO has a web cam already. Way before the apple release. Also 4G capability.

    So much for the iPhone 4G (in more ways than one).

    Wait, so before people have received their HTC Incredible pre-orders, Verizon is going to launch another phone that is supposed to be better? Doesn't that kind of screw their own customers?
